“Their Textures de Pedra wines come from the Més Alta vineyard, a stony site rising to 820 feet in altitude, where they grow the pink-skinned xarel-lo vermell, along with two reds, bastard negre and sumoll—using a selection of the three grapes immediately pressed off the skins. We recommended both the 2013 and 2014 vintages: Presented in a Brut Nature style, these are bold sparklers, with a silky roundness that comes from the 42 months they spent aging on lees. The 2013 has a lively lemon freshness that brightens its rich undertones of mango and papaya. The 2014 is charming in its honeyed texture and its passion fruit flavor. ”
